    Wow, what an explosive final round! Filled with heartbreak and adventure, darkness and mysteriosity, this was definitely a great way to conclude the normal voting rounds. Avid readers tore these stories apart and were left with an intense range of emotions! Let's see which story struck the loudest chord with the readers and will be moving on to the final round!!

    Tribal Wars by Dinobot: 8
    2 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1
    Your Spine is Beautiful by Smiles: 21
    3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 (+3)
    Imagine If Chapter Two by Magikchicken: 10
    3 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 2
    Stolen Love by Axion: 10
    1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 1 (+3)

    With that, it's apparent that Smiles really took home the cake!! "When your body flew through the windshield, your spine soared out of place as if reaching out to me" really hooked the readers, and the tale got even more tragic as you read through it, taking you on Sammie and Dave's harrowing adventure. Some quality literature here, for sure. Round of applause for Smiles and her story, as well as nostalgic looks to the sky for our fallen tributes. Smiles, claim an additional 5k for making it this far, and best of luck in the final round!

    Okay, this is where things get really intense. Authors, you have all fought admirably to get this far. The final round is upon us, and only the best of the best have been able to fight and climb their way to victory. But the competition is fierce, and your stories will be tested. Grab your weapons (pens and quills) and prepare for an all out brawl! The contestants making it to the final round are:

    Shantih, Shantih, Shantih by Elysia
    Making Amends by Akinai
    Your Spine is Beautiful by Smiles

    This round is just the same as the others - the stakes are just higher. Voters will have 10 days to read these stories and send me a PM with your points. As always, please remember to look at the original post for voting guidelines! You have until 11:59 PM (PST) on February 11th, 2014 to send in your votes. If you have any further questions, please feel free to IM/VM/PM me before the voting period ends.

    Also, if you've read the entries already and provided explanations, no need to include summaries with your votes! Redundant and silly. I'll be checking to see if you did actually write the summaries though, so don't try and get out of any writing you haven't done!!

    WOW.

    This writing competition, like my last camping expedition, was in tents. With a relatively small amount of entries, I was hardly expecting a competition of this caliber, but even with the lack of total participants, I think we reached a whole new level of writing greatness. The three preliminary rounds filtered out the best of the best, and this final round filtered out the best of the best of the best. Three of URPG's most budding authors risked it all in this final battle, but alas, only one winner may be crowned! The three stories, in all their excellence!

    Shantih, Shantih, Shantih by Elysia
    Making Amends by Akinai
    Your Spine is Beautiful by Smiles

    Before I announce who takes home the prize, I'd just like to remind everyone that they all wrote admirably, even those who didn't make it to the end. This competition thrives because of your excellence, and you keep the writing spirit alive! So without further ado, here is the tally!

    Coming in at third place is:


    Coming in second place:


    Finally, what you've all been waiting for. The first place participant and winner of the Winter Writing Competition of 2013 is:


    And with that, the competition is concluded. One certainly full of surprises, sadness, and overall, great writing spirit. It's for stories like these that make me proud to operate these competitions. We always draw out the best in the story section, and this competition was surely one that rivals its predecessors. Surely this one will go down in URPG history as being one of the greatest, not just because of the victors, but because of all the heart and soul that all the participants contributed. Quite amazing, actually. The story section never ceases to amaze me! Let's all snap our fingers really really hard to congratulate all of the fantastic writers to really give it their all. It's because of you guys that the story section stays on top and that this competition will always thrive!

    Hip hip, hoorah!!

    Voters! Thank you as well, for your tireless dedication to the competition and the story section itself. As always, if your name is on the list below, remember to post and claim your voting earnings (3k!)

    I'm bad at wrapping things up, but let's wrap this up. THANKS WRITERS, THANKS VOTERS, THANKS OBAMA. I know I've already said this like 40 times, but seriously, this competition blew me away. It was truly fantastic, so hold your heads high as this competition comes to a close.

    POKEMON FOREVER.

    HAVE A BULBASAUR.



    I LOVE YOU ALL.
